Title: Montana Unit 270
Post by: gummy034 on August 17, 2020, 06:59:53 PM
I am going to be heading to this Unit in November for rifle season. I found a Montana FWP Elk study from 2014 that says the winter ranges for elk are on the west side of the unit between Darby and Sula. The general consensus is to get away from roads and people but this part of the unit has a lot of roads and private land. So my question is, what is the Sapphire Wilderness area like where it borders 211? do Elk exist in that area?

Havenít hunted that but I spend a lot of time in the AP wilderness.  Same country, a bit steep not too bad.  Lotsa old burns to glass up.  Thatís where youíll find them. Get away from the trails and good luck! Beautiful country
